Among other things, these numbers mean that

investors of 10 or 20 years ago could have gotten

some reasonably good income from investmentgrade

bonds. But today, the picture is different.

(Higher-yield bonds, sometimes known as “junk”

bonds, can offer more income but carry a higher risk

of default.)

Nonetheless, while rates are low now, you may be able

to employ a strategy that can help you in any interestrate

environment. You can build a bond “ladder” of

individual bonds that mature on different dates.

When market interest rates are low, you’ll still have

your longer-term bonds earning higher yields (and

long-term yields, while fluctuating, are expected to

rise in the future). When interest rates rise, your

maturing bonds can be reinvested at these new,

higher levels. Be sure you evaluate whether a bond

ladder and the securities held within it are consistent

with your investment objectives, risk tolerance and

financial circumstances.

effect on your portfolio. Plus, if you hold your bonds

until maturity, you will get your entire principal back

(providing the bond issuer doesn’t default, which

is generally unlikely if you own investment-grade

bonds), so bond ownership gives you a chance to

preserve capital while still investing.

But if the primary reason you have owned bonds is

because of the income they offer, you may have to

look elsewhere during periods of ultra-low interest

rates. For example, you could invest in dividendpaying

stocks. Some stocks have long track records

of increasing dividends, year after year, giving you

a potential source of rising income. (Keep in mind,

though, that dividends can be increased, decreased

or eliminated at any time.) Be aware, though,

that stocks are subject to greater risks and market

movements than bonds.

Ultimately, while bonds may not provide the income

they did a few years ago, they can have a place in a

long-term investment strategy. Consider how they

might fit into yours.

Before investing in bonds, you should understand the

risks involved, including credit risk and market risk.

Bond investments are also subject to interest rate risk

such that when interest rates rise, the prices of bonds

can decrease, and the investor can lose principal

value if the investment is sold prior to maturity.

“I am passionate

about community

involvement and

going beyond the

walls of City Hall by

reaching out and

listening, respecting

and really hearing

all voices and

perspectives.”


Jennifer Stapleton grew up in Helena,

Montana, but like many people, fell in

love with Sandpoint the first time she

visited, which was during her senior

year of college at Gonzaga University. She and

her husband Greg shared a goal of moving to

a smaller community where they could raise

their kids and spend weekends on the water,

and Sandpoint called their name.

A driving force behind Sandpoint’s new Master

Plan, Stapleton is dedicated to her work for our

community. When she’s not focused on making

our city the best possible community it can

be, you’ll find her with family and friends, or

maybe even participating in a local cornhole

tournament.

Q. Is there a specific memory, story or person

that has greatly influenced who you are today?

A. My family, definitely, has been very influential.

I was raised by my parents, Tom and Marilyn,

who both have a strong work ethic that was

undoubtedly passed on to me. I started working

in my dad’s veterinary clinic when I was 9 or 10.

It started with cleaning the kennels and quickly

evolved into receptionist and veterinary assistant.

I assisted with many of his after-hours calls and

have helped pull porcupine quills out of a dog

more than once! I have worked ever since that

time—through high school and college, until

today.

Beyond that, I was raised with a love for

community and a commitment to community

service and family that is deeply rooted in loyalty.

Q. What makes our town such a special, unique

place to live?

A. The beauty of Sandpoint is breathtaking, and

the sense of community is on par with the best.

The recreational opportunities and open spaces

are constantly calling, and we answer as often

as we can. We appreciate and attend nearly all

of the events and look forward to seeing friends

and neighbors downtown, at the Panida, and

generally out and about. One of the things I have

missed most during COVID is music. We are

so fortunate to have such great local artists and

others who want to perform here. The silence has

been deafening.

Beyond this, we are a small community that has a

fascinating mix of people and diversity of thought

from places all over the world. That provides a

richness to our community fabric that I haven’t

seen elsewhere. We have had the most interesting

conversations with strangers who became friends.

We regularly have moments with our small group

of close friends where we look at one another and

just say, “We live here.” Nothing else needs to be

said.

Q. What are you most passionate about in your

role as city administrator?

A. It’s a simple answer—serving this community

and all who live, work, recreate and visit here. I

am passionate about community involvement

and going beyond the walls of City Hall by

reaching out and listening, respecting and really

hearing all voices and perspectives. I am also

passionate about the city team. Our community

is truly fortunate to have such dedicated, talented

and innovative city employees. They work hard,

and most go far above and beyond to serve this

community.

Q. Is there a specific vision or dream you have

for Sandpoint in the future?

A. I don’t allow myself my own vision of future

Sandpoint because, if I did, it would cloud

my ability to hear and represent the collective

community vision. Growth is here—more than

I think people even realize—and it is important,

more than ever, that we come together and define

what aspects of our community and our history

we value most and which define our place and

who we are so we can stay focused on protecting

and preserving them. That is why all of our master

planning is so important.

Q. How will the Master Plan benefit and advance

our community as a place to live and visit?

A. These planning efforts are important because

they define our community priorities, needs and

vision based on community input, benchmarking

and best practices and technical expert reviews,

analysis and recommendations. I have never seen

another community take on as many Master Plans

at one time as we are doing. That said, this is how

it should be done. I credit our elected officials for

their insight and vision in this regard.

Usually, governments tackle one Master Plan at

a time and, as a result, resources get prioritized

based on the most recent planning effort and don’t

take into account the needs and visions across

all service areas. Without that broader effort,

governments inevitably allocate funds to one

need at the expense of others. Prioritization can

only really happen when all things are considered.

Q. What has been a piece of advice or experience

that you’ve carried with you and that has

impacted your life for the better?

A. I had a conversation with a very close friend

of mine, Dean Lueck, when I was considering the

job opportunity at the city and agonizing over the

impacts of a move on my family. Dean was 77 at

the time, and he said to me, “You know, Jennifer,

one of the regrets I have when I look back on my

life is that I did not take enough risks.” Dean’s

words have stuck with me to this day, and I’m

still fortunate to benefit from his wisdom and

friendship. I appreciate him beyond words.

A STORIED PAST AND

A BRIGHT FUTURE

BY ABIGAIL THORPE

often ask about ghosts in the theater—and yes

we have some—but we also have the spirit of all who

“People

have performed there, been entertained there, and all

who have cared for it over the many years,” says Patricia Walker,

executive director of the Panida Theater.

For more than 90 years, the Panida has served as the heart of the

downtown community and arts scene. From film festivals and

dance recitals to the yearly Follies, concerts and even a wedding or

two, it’s brought joy, fun and a sense of community engagement to

our small downtown—and there are more memories to be made.

So named for the PANhandle of IDAho, the Panida first opened its

doors in 1927. Built by F.C. Weskil, it was designed in the Spanish

Mission style and intended as a multi-use vaudeville and movie

house.

In its early years, a sign hanging backstage reminded people how

to pronounce Panida: like Canada instead of with the long sound

of the “I” in Idaho, and on opening night, patrons marveled at the

intricate architecture and interior, unlike anything else seen in

Sandpoint then, or to this day.

“The marquee has continued to light up even when times were bleak

over the years, and people would save up to come to the theater and

escape and be carried away and see friends,” muses Walker. “More

than one young man stole his first kiss in the balcony, and you sense

the spirit of community pride when you walk in.”

Today, an event at the Panida draws people from all over the area,

as well as neighboring states and even Canada (during normal

time when travel is permitted). The ornate theater can seat up to

500 people, with great acoustics and clear views from every seat.

A state-of-the-art sound system and digital projector system has

brought the Panida into the modern age, but its historic character

remains, the result of no small effort.

“Decades of glory faded into years of neglect before major

fundraising and restoration efforts by the Sandpoint community

reopened the Panida as a nonprofit organization in 1985,” explains

Walker. “Today, it still takes continued fundraising and tremendous

effort to keep it preserved, protected and serving the community,

and it is still worth all the effort.”

The Panida is a cornerstone of cultural activities for Sandpoint and

contributes significantly to the local economy, but as a nonprofit

it relies on community support. “The Panida is the heart of the

community, and it takes everyone to keep it beating,” adds Walker.

Its mission remains simple: To share and protect the historical

integrity of the Panida, providing a space to enrich the community

culturally and economically through entertainment, education and

community involvement.

Go Sandpoint Magazine 15


As an arthouse, the Panida isn’t just a typical commercial

movie theater. During an average year, patrons can enjoy

local and global film festivals, movies and presentations,

concerts from local and touring artists, dance performances,

comedy, live theatre, educational speakers and presentations,

and even private events like weddings.

But keeping a historic building preserved and functioning as

an ongoing cultural hub of the community is no small task.

Throughout the years, large projects have been ongoing to

keep the Panida in its original beauty. Currently, the Panida

team is working on gathering bids to repair the original

marquee. Parts have broken over the years, and there are

several inoperative neon components. Efforts are underway

to restore it to its original functionality and look while

utilizing more energy-efficient LED lights behind the letters.

They are also looking to continue the restoration of the

interior with repairs to the proscenium, a continuation of

Greg Marsters from Custom Plaster’s painstaking work to

restore the ceilings.

As a result of the many efforts over the years, the Panida

Theater, which is on the National Register of Historic Places,

has received special recognition from the governor of Idaho,

the Idaho Commission of the Arts, the Idaho Centennial

Commission and the U.S. Department of the Interior,

and has even been honored with “Take Pride in Idaho”

and “America” awards, and received the coveted Orchid

Award for historic preservation from the Idaho Historic

Preservation Council.

While the theater has been shuttered due to the pandemic,

they have made an effort to still offer films and new virtual

theatrical performances online to continue bringing arts

and culture to the community—even the ever-popular Banff

Film Festival was held online.

In a typical year, 52 weekends offers ample opportunity

to present a diverse range of events and performances,

including the widely popular Banff Film Festival, The Oscar

Shorts, Panida’s selection of A-list Oscar contender films,

the Manhattan Short Film Festival, Panida Playhouse Player

live theatre shows, and the beloved Follies burlesque from

Angels Over Sandpoint.

Typically, The Follies takes place in March, packing the

Panida with tickets sold out in advance, and local performers

practicing for weeks and months in anticipation of the adult

variety show. This year The Follies has been postponed, but

Angels Over Sandpoint and the Panida still hope to bring it

to Sandpoint in early October, health conditions permitting.

In addition to featuring national talent, the Panida

also highlights the achievements of local talent in film,

screenplays, musicals and acting through events like

the Hearthside Stories, Festival of the Bards, Sandpoint

Filmmaker Network events and more.

The community is invited to rent the space for local

fundraisers and community offerings. The Pend Oreille

Arts Council holds seasonal concerts there with artists from

around the world, and local performers from the Music

Conservatory and Sandpoint High School have frequently

graced the stage.

“WITH AN EMPHASIS ON BRINGING IN A BROAD

VARIETY OF ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT, THE

PANIDA CONTINUES TO BE THE HEART OF OUR

DOWNTOWN, OUR COMMUNITY AND

THE GEM OF NORTH IDAHO.”

FOR MORE THAN 90 YEARS, THE PANIDA HAS

SERVED AS THE HEART OF THE DOWNTOWN

COMMUNITY AND ARTS SCENE.

16 Go Sandpoint Magazine


“With an emphasis on bringing in a broad variety of arts and

entertainment, the Panida continues to be the heart of our

downtown, our community and the gem of North Idaho,”

says Walker.

As a nonprofit, the Panida relies on the donations and fundraising it

receives, as well as the income generated through programming to survive.

In addition to ticket sales, revenue comes from concessions like beer,

wine and other items to help offset expenses to keep the theater running.

In addition to the main theater, the Panida also operates two storefronts

on either side of the main theater, as well as the Little Theatre, which

offers dinner theatre, comedy shows, presentations and workshops,

and has even served as a dressing room for large productions like The

Nutcracker.

“Where the main theater is more limited in what can be done there, the

Little Theatre can be conformed to fit the needs more easily, making

it a tremendous asset,” explains Walker. “The Panida also has a large

group of volunteers, and the income they save the theater by their

efforts keeps much-needed revenue in-house.”

Once programming resumes, the Panida is excited to offer a new

loyalty card program for loyal patrons who want to make the most

of the exciting events and programs the theater offers. For those who

would like to stay updated, there is a fantastic weekly newsletter you

can subscribe to on the website at Panida.org, and if you’d like to help

support continuing efforts to keep the Panida as a thriving heart of

our downtown community, online or mailed donations are always

welcome.

For many, the Panida Theater is at the heart of the community and

cultural spirit we so treasure in downtown Sandpoint. Here’s to many

more memories to be made at our Sandpoint playhouse, vaudeville

and movie house.

in celebration of Pelican’s 25th birthday. Stop in all day for a pint of some of these

delicious beers, and don’t miss live music starting at 7pm. If you’re not in the mood

2,400 FEET OF SCHWEITZER

MARCH 27

The longest giant slalom in the U.S is back! March 27 marks the annual 2,400 Feet of

Schweitzer alpine, snowboard and telemark event to support 24 Hours for Hank, so

get ready to hit the slopes. At sunrise, the event begins at the Sky House Lodge on the

summit of Schweitzer, finishing at the Outback Lodge at the base. All skill levels are

welcome, and each team will include two or four people, with timed runs. 24 Hours for

Hank helps raise money to fund Cystinosis research, and 1,400 Feet of Schweitzer is

one of their biggest events. COVID precautions will be in place for this year’s event, but

it will still include the coveted prizes for each category and age group. Enjoy a barbecue

lunch after the excitement of the event, with a delicious dinner, silent auction and live

auction to follow. All proceeds go to support Cystinosis research. Register and learn

more at 24HoursforHank.org.

*Please note, as of press time, these events were still scheduled to take place as planned. Due to the

current health crisis, there is the possibility that event schedules may change or events canceled

completely. Be sure to visit event websites to stay up to date with current information.

MARCH

fun fact

From Farragut to

Sandpoint

Once, not so long ago, Farragut was

the largest town in Idaho, with a

population over 50,000. World War

II had caused the area to grow overnight,

as the U.S. Government established

the Farragut Naval Training Station in

1942. Just several years later, what was

once the world’s second largest naval

training station was nearly nonexistent.

Most of its 776 buildings were sold or

removed—some of which made their way

to Sandpoint.

In 1949, buildings from the former naval

training station were floated across Lake

Pend Oreille to Sandpoint to replace

the Page Hospital. The land along the

southern tip of Lake Pend Oreille that had

made up the station was put up for sale,

and so began the beginning of today’s

Farragut State Park.

WORLD - CLASS REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL

REAL Market Update - Brought to you by Jackie Suarez, Associate Broker

What is the current real estate market climate in North Idaho?

Our market continues to favor Sellers. Good news for Buyers – as Spring approaches, more properties are entering

the market and mortgage lenders are still offering extremely low rates.

Is now a good time to buy or sell?

I always say when the time is right for you, the time is right.

Sellers, you currently have the advantage of high demand and relatively low supply. Rely on professionals, price

your home or land accordingly and know your next step.

Buyers be ready. Cash offers tend to take priority in this market. Approach your home search with proof of your

purchasing ability and keep an open mind to a property’s long-term potential.

One thing is certain - our market is constantly changing. What is important to me remains the same. God, Family

and Relationships.

Contact Jackie Suarez, your local expert for help with your real estate needs.

What Jackie’s clients are saying

“Jackie is a pro hands down. Very clear and good communicaaon. A wealth of

knowledge that makes a difference! We highly recommend Jackie for any real estate

transacaon. You will not be disappointed!

Steve and Kim R., Sandpoint

“Buying a vacaaon property in a different state from where we reside was a new experience

for us, and Jackie Suarez made it so easy! From her expert local knowledge

to realism on amelines, recommendaaon on mortgage broker, and responsiveness

to all of our quesaons, her help was invaluable. I would recommend her to anyone

looking to buy in beauaful Sandpoint, ID.”

Pam R., Dover, ID

"Jackie Suarez with Century 21 RiverStone provided excellent, professional service in

choosing and purchasing our new home. Jackie is knowledgeable, friendly and

always ready to help in any way possible. With the ‘paaence of Job’, Jackie was willing

to show us anything and everything that we were interested in seeing. She’s also

a preey good counselor as well - haha! I wouldn’t think of using anyone other than

Jackie Suarez for our next real estate transacaon - she did a fabulous job for us and

she’ll do the same for you!”

Steve and Gloria S., Sandpoint, ID

“Thank you for everything and all your awesome work.”
